At issue:
This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.
+20 (yeas:74 nays:54)
Mismatched Eyes

Pro: Makes it clear that the characters eyes don't match each other.

Con: Can be misunderstood to include other differences than color, such as size or shape.
+20 (yeas:63 nays:43)
Heterochromia (current redirect)

  • Currently already a redirect.
  • Proper name for the condition.

  • Not a commonly-known word.
  • May present spelling problems.
  • Not immediately clear that it refers to eyes.
+17 (yeas:54 nays:37)
Boat Light Eyes

Pros: More or less keeps the existing title by adding a clarifying qualifier. More interesting than a plain description (Your Mileage May Vary)

Con: Still doesn't automatically convey what "boat lights" means (Your Mileage May Vary for remembering it.)
+12 (yeas:43 nays:31)
Heterochromatic Eyes

  • Proper scientific term for the condition.
  • "Eyes" makes it clear from the name that the trope is about a character's eyes.

  • Open to misspelling.
  • Not a commonly-known word.
0 (yeas:2 nays:2)
Desu Eyes

  • Immediately recognizable to most fans of anime at least due to Memetic Mutation.
  • Can be used to Pot Hole, but still lets readers know it has to do with eyes.
  • Still references Rozen Maiden.
  • Easier to remember than Heterochromia.

  • Is not immediately apparent to anyone new to anime or the internet in general.
-1 (yeas:2 nays:3)
Bowie Eyes

  • Clearly about eyes
  • People familiar with David Bowie know it's about his heterochromia.

  • Meaningless for people who don't know who David Bowie is.
-5 (yeas:1 nays:6)
One Eye Blue One Eye Something
-13 (yeas:1 nays:14)
Two Eyes, Two/Different Colors

-19 (yeas:9 nays:28)
Odd Eyes (Also what it's sometimes referred to as.)
-21 (yeas:8 nays:29)
Dual Colored Eyes

  • Clearly about eye color

  • Can be misunderstood to mean eyes that are two colors at once, for example predominantly green with a gold ring around the pupil.
-26 (yeas:5 nays:31)
Eyes Of A Different Color

  • Clearly about eye color.

  • Sounds like it could apply to a character with non-normal eye color (purple, silver, red, etc.) in general rather than specifically two different eye colors
-33 (yeas:1 nays:34)
Traffic Light Eyes

  • Clearly about eyes

  • Implies that the eyes change color.

  • Implies that the color is artificially changed.
